Bookbug Sessions

Please note that due to the Coronavirus pandemic library based Bookbug sessions have been suspended until further notice. Join us on our Facebook page on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10.30am for fun with Bookbug from home.

What are they?

Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and their families and carers to enjoy together. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and has been designed to support children’s development while having fun. They take place in a very relaxed environment and are a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your little one, and meet other families.

All sessions are drop in with no need to book or be a member of the library to take part.


Rhymes and songs help your baby’s language skills and are great building blocks for your baby’s future learning. Sharing time singing with your babies, toddlers and preschoolers is a fantastic way to have fun together. And it’s a great place to meet other families. Come along and join in the fun.
